Looking for a beer store for your Myrtle Beach trip? This is the one place to go for a great selection of American and Belgian beers. The store is clean and well organized, and there is a whole aisle dedicated to the beer.
There are plenty of quality sixpacks and bomber bottles from the likes of Stone, Victory, New Holland, Highland, Terrapin, Stoudts, Southern Tier, Duck-Rabbit, and New Belgium. Too many others to list here.
Defintely a great place to stock up on your trip, and it is also right around the corner from Gordon Biersch in the same Market Common area.

Finally, a decent beer selection in Myrtle Beach. I really like the Market Common area. It is filled with mixed use buildings that house commercial and residential buildings. Its a nice little village away from the masses. Classy too!
This is probably the classiest Pig I have been to. It was almost boutique-like. The beer selection was quite impressive. I was thinking there would be more but the selection is pretty well thought out and planned. The beer area is in the back left corner of the store.
I was kind of excited about the propect of having a growler but the only things on draft were Foothills. Nothing wrong with Foothills but go there often.
They had the largest selection of Southern Tier beers I have seen. I would assume that any ST beers available were there. They had about 10 different ones.
I havent been to Greens in a while but they seem to have more beers. Piggly Wiggly certainly concentrates on the craft beers better but I guess each has the best selection. I like to stay on the southern side of MB when I come down for business and this will be my beer stop when I need beers.

I made it to this legendary Piggly Wiggly this past August while vacationing in Myrtle the same way that every other BA is probably gonna find themselves upon this massive selection in the South. I guess the co-owner and operator Mike Byrd has a serious interest in not only crafts but also the their massive wine selection.
This place is tucked into a new commercial district called the Market Common, there's also a Gordon Biersch right down the road. By the way as an FYI, my brother and I went once and missed their store hours by a half an hour. Call and check the time, I was thinking up all night grocery store? Anyway I didn't make it back here until the night before I was leaving back to Ohio.
I went in evening no real service to speak of, other then the friendly checkout girl with a passion for the wine selection. Also I spoke with a guy stocking yogurt, and he gave me a little back ground on the guy who created the selection about his passion and connection to the craft brewing community.
Stellar selection, I got Stone Self Righteous, Smuttynose Saison, Ballast Point Dorado Double IPA, Ston Cali Belgique, Ommegang Biere de Mars, and Hoppin' Frog Barrel Aged Boris the Crusher (holy shit!!!) A beer that I can't even get living in Ohio, never seen a bottle yet up my way though I know it's now in Pittsburgh. I spent well over a hundred bucks and got an Allagash and Ommegang chalice as well.
I hear this is going to be a takeout growler estabilishment in the near future, with a small but high quality selection of drafts. Very nice I hope it works in the grocery setting, I wish this could exist up my way.

This was a worthwhile stop for me on my day trip to Myrtle Beach. They have a nice collection of craft brew - The Bruery, Eel River, Hoppin' Frog, Bells, Stone, Dogfish Head, Weyerbacher, Victory, Smuttynose, plus plenty of local craft offerings. I saw their tap/growler setup but did not attempt to get any. Unlike earlier reviews they did not have 3 local options. I saw Maharaja, Coney Island Lager, Arrogant Bastard and a 4th that slips my mind. (All four are stuff I've had before.) One negative is the lack of single 12oz beers or a mixer sixer. The prices were on point with what I am used to for these beers. A good place to find some beer in Myrtle Beach.

This is a gold mine of beer for a place like MB. The selection for the area is extremely good. Beer department is in the back left corner of the store. Lots of bombers and sixers. Low volume of imports, but that's not a problem for me.
Growler station is great, with 4 excellent offerings on at all times. The price is very good as well.
Lots of Hoppin' Frog featured on this visit. Southern Tier well represented, too. Coronado brewing products, New South White in cans, lots of Stone.
Service was nonexistent when I was there. Might be a problem if you need a growler fill.

This is an upscale Piggly Wiggly! I didn't know those existed.
Fantastic selection for the tourist. Victory, Founders, New Holland, Bear Rupublic, Founders and more. Plenty of imports from Belgium and Germany too.
Very clean store, very well laid out for the beer selection. Good breadth of selection and the staff seemed to know their beer too.
Prices were comparable to the rest of Myrtle Beach. A must stop if you are in from out of town. From the other reviews, it appears this is a favorit stop for the locals too.

I visited here twice on a recent trip, and I have to say that it has a fantastic selection for the area, and even for a lot of other places I've been.
A pretty broad range of US micros, a few just to give an idea: Hoppin' Frog; Ommegang (even had Bier de Mars and Ommegeddon); Souther Tier; New Belgium; New Holland; Victory; Stone; Bell's; Duck Rabbit; Terrapin; and Highland.
I actually scored a BA BORIS at this place (should note that was the only rarer brew there), which was awesome. Everything seemed to be fresh, and though I was offered help, I didn't take up the gentleman minding the beer shelves.
There were also a number of European brews from England, Germany, and Belgium. However, there weren't many that one couldn't find in a lot of other places.
Overall, this is a must stop if you are in the area. Great place.

Visited the week of Christmas to pick up a growler and see what else I could find
First off, this is not the Piggly Wiggly I knew as a child. The lone Pig remaining in my area wouldn't dream of having growlers as its both illegal and no one buys growlers of Bud Light. Neither would they carry glassware, craft beer from across the globe, or even the artisan meats and cheeses. What a welcome grocery store experience.
The selection was good - probably a 3.5 until you realize its still a grocery store, so I had to give it a little extra. Four taps including 2 from Foothills and 2 other big name micros. Bottles came mostly from the US, with a good selection of Germans as well. Belgian bottles were ok, though that may be as much to do with it being in SC as anything. Bonus points for offering a good amount of glassware
Quality was ok - the Foothills pils I picked up wasn't super fresh, but still drinkable. Pricing scheme was on par with what I'd expect, and the service was very attentive and helpful. What a quality beer section if a nice grocery store.

We were in town on vacation a few weeks ago and went right to this location based on the BA reviews, we had to stock up on beer for our rather quick vacation.
The selection, for a grocery store, is quite impressive. If anyone is from the Mid-Atlantic area, the beer stock and atmosphere rivals that of the Wegman's stores in our area. Well organized, and a nice selection of many different styles. I was with my son at the time with the rest of the family outside waiting in the parking lot so I had to do a very quick sweep of the beer section. Had I more time, I would have recorded a list of the more impressive things they had to offer. What I ended up purchasing was a bomber of: Moylan's Nor-Cal IPA, Moylan's Moylander Double IPA, Moylan's Hopsickle (Yes, we're big fans of Moylan's!), and a sixer of Ballast Point Big Eye IPA. They also had stock from Victory, DFH, Rogue, Hoppin' Frog (I was surprised that one.), and some other impressive items that I can't honestly remember right now, but just know, there were alot of good selections available.
In terms of quality, EVERY one of the IPA's purchased were total malt bombs which was very disappointing. Of the bombers purchased, the Hopsickle and Nor*Cal ended up being drain pours (at $10 each), and I nursed the bottle of Moylander because I couldn't stand to see another $10 go over the rail. The Ballast Point was the same, but we managed to get three of those down and ended up bringing three home which are still sitting in my fridge and probably will continue to do so. We went back for some Sierra Nevada Torpedo instead which was much, much better. Nothing wrong with Torpedo, it's just easy to get back in PA with Moylan's being a little tougher to come by, that's all. In their defense, transporting beer from one coast to the other, especially respectable West Coast IPA's like these, there's several obstacles and elements to overcome along the way, the biggest one being just plain "time".
I'm sure most of their other beers were fine, but if you're a hop head looking for a nice fresh, IPA, don't get too excited, get something else instead. If we ever go back, I'll purchase other styles instead that I know will keep better.
